Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken roll, 3/4 cup pasta, and 1/2 cup sauce)

An Italian acquaintance suggested the garlic cloves simmer in store-bought marinara to add flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine goat cheese, 2 tablespoons basil, and minced garlic; set aside.

Step 2

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and pound each half to a 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Divide the cheese mixture evenly among breast halves. Roll up jelly-roll fashion. Tuck in sides; secure each roll with wooden picks.

Step 3

Heat the pasta sauce and whole garlic cloves in a large skillet over medium heat; add chicken. Cover and cook 25 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve over pasta. Garnish with 1 tablespoon basil.
